All about the Ultimate Everest Base Camp with Island Peak Expedition.

High in the Khumbu region of Nepal, close to Everest and closer still to the steep south face of Lhotse, the aptly named Island Peak (6189m) rises above the of glaciated valleys below. With its outrageous location and elegant summit ridge, this peak has been a favourite with our guides, leaders and clients for 2 decades. Trekking via Namche Bazaar we follow the route to Everest Base Camp via the Gokyo valley and Cho La Pass and into Lobuche beside the Khumbu glacier. As part of our acclimatisation programme we visit Everest Base Camp and make an ascent of the classic viewpoint of Kala Pattar, where we enjoy some of the finest views of the world’s highest peak. Then crossing the Khumbu Glacier, we climb up to the Kongma La which gives access to the valley of the Imja Khola and the summer grazing settlement of Chukung. From here we move up to the base camp for our main objective, Island Peak. The ascent of this 6000 metre peak in the shadow of the huge Lhotse face is an ‘alpine experience’ in every sense, involving fine climbing in exposed situations amongst breathtaking scenery. This is one of the best of all Nepalese adventures.

This itinerary combines the classic Everest Base Camp trek, with climbing one of Nepal’s trekking peaks whilst also climbing 2 of the high passes of the Khumbu region. After visiting Everest Base Camp and walking up Kala Pattar we head to Island Peak Base Camp in the next valley. Our trip includes three days to climb Island Peak which includes an extra time in case the weather does not co-operate or if you require extra time for acclimatisation.

Experience Required

The Ultimate Everest Base Camp with Island Peak Expedition with 2 high passes is a tough and arduous trek and climb. It is meant to be challenging. You must be a fit, regular hillwalker to take part, used to long, consecutive days walking in the British Mountains, preferably in Winter. You should have experience of walking steep, boulder-strewn paths where the use of hands has been essential to scramble upwards over rocky steps. Previous experience of Himalayan trekking is preferable, but not essential as long as you are a very regular and committed hill-walker. As this route takes you over remote high passes and a Himalayan peak, experience of having been to 5000-metres before is ideal.

We can forward a detailed equipment list upon booking. However you can also view our Recommended Equipment for this trip »

Over the years, we have gained an incredible amount of experience and expertise in outdoor equipment and clothing. We have applied this to each trip that we offer and recommend what we believe to be the most suitable items for your trip.
